You don't have to remove the front part of the shaft if you don't want to,
you can just remove the back and then tie it up (securely!) underneath the
car. BTW, you will receive a lot of advice saying "remove the shaft" or
"don't bother". It's an old argument, one which I have never taken a side
on. Remove it if only for your peace of mind, and so no gremlins put your
car in gear while at a rest area.
